Cameron Green’s game-changing potential is well documented by his Australian teammates, who believe his dressing room presence has taken on new meaning following his success in the Indian subcontinent over the past four months. Green scored his first Test century on his first test tour of India earlier this year. He scored aggressively 114 out of just 143 goals in the fourth test of the Border-Gavascar trophy in Ahmedabad in March of this year.
Green maintained his form in this year’s IPL, hitting 452 runs out of 16 innings at a strike rate north of 160 for the Mumbai Indians, which also includes 47 balls to put the five-time champions into the playoffs.
“His (Green) presence in the team has definitely changed after participating in the IPL and after hitting that 100 in Ahmedabad,” senior Australian Nathan Lyon told cricket.com.au ahead of the World Testing Championship final. against India.
“He’s getting more confident and becoming more of himself, coming out of his shell a little more on the team.
“I think it’s just because I have the opportunity to stick around and play in the IPL and be around people like (Test captain from Mumbai and India) Rohit Sharma and these guys to learn from them,” he added. .
The WTC Final between India and Australia will take place at The Oval starting Wednesday.
Australian rookie Usman Khawaja, who watched Green from close range during their 208-fifth wicket run in Ahmedabad in March of this year, believes the strike has completely changed the youngster.
“I know what it’s like – it took me nine or 10 (moves) to get my first 100 in four years, and I know how I felt when I was able to get there,” he said.
“After I got my first one, the floodgates just opened, which is always the case. You get the first one, and the next few are just because you were there, you did it. knew that.
“He (Greene) is such a legend, he is such a good guy. You want only the best for him, so I really liked it, ”added Khawaja.
